New Wireless AT&T Service Area in Warren Activated
New link should provide service in town's southeast areas.
AT&T activated a new wireless service link for the company's customers accessing the Internet on Mountain Boulevard, east of Mt. Bethel Road.
The service is possible because of a new cell site, although the company did not have details on the exact areas the service will reach at this point.
"Customers are using their smartphones, tablets and laptops more than ever before, driving an increased demand for expanded mobile broadband connectivity," J. Michael Schweder, president, AT&T New Jersey, said in a press release. "We plan to continue to invest aggressively across the state to ensure that our customers in the Garden State have access to the technology and mobile services they need to help grow our economy."
"Our goal is for our customers to have an extraordinary experience. As part of the community in Watchung, we're always looking for new opportunities to provide an enhanced customer experience and our investment in the local wireless network is just one way we're accomplishing that," Tom DeVito, vice president and general manager for AT&T New Jersey and New York, said.
